House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made runner-up as Time Magazine's person of the year, losing out to Fed chairman Ben Bernanke. In a glowing profile, Time says Pelosi has "consolidated more power than any other Speaker in modern history."
In an interview with reporters in the Capitol today, Pelosi outlined what is in fact an astonishingly long list of accomplishments this year, from a hair-raising bank rescue to the largest fiscal stimulus in U.S. history, to a climate change bill to health care legislation and millions of acres of wilderness, food safety, labor legislation and other major bills that have gotten lost in the shuffle but would on their own be considered landmark legislation in quieter times.
The fact that much of this legislation is stuck in the Senate only underlines Pelosi's skill in corralling her fractious House majority. (She cast the Senate as "that saucer thing.") Yes the House rules favor her, but the record is indisputable.
A House Democrat speaking anonymously recently explained her key assets: she raises a ton of money for colleagues, she is relentless, she works harder than anyone else, she knows policy inside-out, and she is a master of the three-dimensional chess of House politics that requires an intimate knowledge of the needs and limits of each member to achieve the exquisite if sometimes messy blend of policies and perks necessary to pass legislation.

Amazing, the piglouse is voted a person, period.
I wonder why she didn’t mention being a “practicing Catholic” and supporting the ghoulish practice of abortion?
Maybe she can get it next December ... the month after she leads her party off a cliff.
She will go down in history as a total disaster for the RAT party.
Lol @ TIME.
adolph hitler Krushchev Khomeini and Stalin won the award from Time
Hmmm. Well, that may say more about Time than about Pelosi.
I am SHOCKED!! you mean “The ONE” is not receiving it?
Time has a long history of picking the worst communist bastards for person of the year
The magazine will be wrapped in a plastic pouch which will also serve as a great vomit bag.
Time Magazine has just revealed themselves again as a joke of a magazine.
IMO, they're both losers and, being "honored" by Time, merely confirms it!!
I thought TOTUS has this nailed.
“The 2009 Person of the Year is a Machine”
Honestly, who cares? Time is a joke. So is Newsweek, the NY Times, Washington Post, and the rest of the dinosaur media. They are irrelevant. No one with half a brain reads them anyway.
the 50 subscribers will be happy.....PEEEEEEEEEloisi is a POS
Time's time is up. LOL
Mother Russia would be proud.
Time is vying for most irrelevant with the Nobel.
